But the truth is the first game is like taking the temperature: 'Are we OK?' That’s what it’s like. The first game can serve for generating confidence, seeing how much the competition means to us, and if you win in a way that shows your qualities then that’s a great way to start."
Spain Predicted Lineup
Unai Simón: Azpilicueta, Laporte, Pau Torres, Alba: Llorente, Rodri, Pedri: Gerard Moreno, Morata, Ferran Torres.
Key Player: Gerard Moreno
In the form of his life, brimming with confidence and a newly crowned UEFA Europa League winner. Loves to cut in form the right onto his exquisite left foot but will often be asked to perform as a false nine this summer. Spain's chief goal threat but a No10 too.

"Playing Spain away is one of the toughest challenges in the world of football today. It's an exciting challenge and we need an absolute top performance, but we've had those in the past and I hope we can get another one. We have threatened them in the past. We know that if we can get everything to click, we absolutely have a chance on Monday."
Sweden Predicted Lineup
Olsen; Lustig, Lindelöf, Danielson, Augustinsson; S. Larsson, Ekdal, Olsson, Forsberg; Isak, Berg.
Key Player: Emil Forsberg
The Leipzig midfielder will shoulder much of the responsibility for Sweden’s attack. He is pacy, creative and has the kind of physique that means he is not easily pushed around. He also has a fine shot and is one of the team's best free-kick takers, along with Sebastian Larsson.
